This is the first review I have written but this place is perfect. Don't look any further. The tents were amazing and they each have a great outdoor shower. The food was wonderful with a nice mix of local flair if you are an adventurous eater (which I am not but was still very happy). We were lucky to be... More

This is a luxury camp with hotel room level amenities in the "tents." The main lodge wraps around a lawn and a swimming pool, and it all faces a waterhole where you can watch game come and drink during the day. Some days we saw more animals at the waterhole than on the game drive, and we usually saw a... More

This place is faultless, everything is set up and works absolutely without a hitch I don't even know where to start. Between the tours themselves, food, cabins, service, drinks, etc... everything is run to its upmost level of perfection. The guides are extremely knowledgable and professional, along with that it's amazing how good the trackers are at spotting for example... More

Tanda Tula offers a first rate safari experience. The accommodation is excellent from all suites (view on the river bed, tent design, bathroom) but the attention and care brought by every member of the team is really what sticks out. Our ranger/guide, Civilized, conveyed his passion for the animals and created amazing experiences for us. Chef Ryan and his team... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our tracker and ranger were well trained, which resulted in a safe and wonderful trip with a lot of animals to see. The tents are luxurious with an outdoor douche and indoor bath and toilet. The sight from the veranda (and your bed) is amazing, my friend saw an elephant when she woke... More

We stayed some three days in Tanda Tula and loved it. Great, comfortable tent, with all the comforts and a very nice bathroom (with outside shower). Excellent restaurant and bar as well as magnificent terrace overlooking a pool and a water-hole, where elephants et alia regularly visit. Game drives with Ginger and Patrick were extraordinary. Thanks to the Tanda Tula... More
